Eddie Hearn warns KSI against ‘dangerous’ Jake Paul fight


“KSI’s taken a couple of years out, he’s come back. That would be a very dangerous fight for KSI.”

KSI recently offered to step in for Tommy Fury when the former Love Island contestant – half-brother of heavyweight boxing champion Tyson – withdrew from his scheduled bout with Paul this summer.

Fury, 23, was set to fight Paul last December but pulled out of the contest while citing injury and illness. The Briton has since withdrawn from his planned 6 August clash with Paul due to travel issues, leading Rahman Jr to replace him.

Rahman Jr (12-1, 6 knockouts) is the son of former heavyweight champion Hasim Rahman, and the 31-year-old is a former sparring partner of Paul.
